Dugan must be the worst centre to ever play for Australia. Continually found out in defence and so predictable with his stepping back inside. Surely we can find a better centre?

Cronk probably played his last game for Aust. We need more from our 7.

Now the Poms are really regretting not taking that two just before half time

Could be a 6-4 ball game , 20 odd left

No..theyre not.

Tough picking a MotM...no real standouts
Tough game.worthy of a final...Englands spine is.pretty avarage as it has been for decade's

Wrong on both counts.

I hope they get the Jillaroos out too after the formalities to soak up the atmosphere

Gillett and Cordner best on ground in my opinion.
Not overly impressed with Campbell-Gillard. Very one dimensional.

Anyway great win. That was a tough, fast game of footy that swung from end to end the whole 80. Only 16 points against in 6 games.
Well done Roos!

Maybe but it would of changed the game and ruled out Australia thinking of taking the one

MOTM , not really one of those games , maybe Smith or even Gillett

No Morgan and Cronk didn't click at all , maybe better off going with Munster with Morgan on the bench

The backrow were immense. Im starting to love Maguire as a player. He is one tough SOB with a huge motor. Gillett and Cordner were a class above their opposites.

Macguire is one of my favourite players in the league... one of those players who doesnt cut corners to pump out the minutes, a real motor, physical every minute he is out there.

Great game of footy. Credit to both teams/ players and their coaches. Cant find a valid reason to bag anyone after that - great commitment shown by both teams.

Great arm wrestle to watch. England will be ruing their execution. I was disappointed with Morgan, personally I think Munster may have been more of a threat at 6. Meninga's use of the interchange worked well with all props playing similar minutes although none stood out.
